I am in the standard 'System Administrator' profile, and this permission has the 'Schedule Future Runs' permission.

I want to change the running user on a scheduled report from an inactive user to an active user. This report was developed in classic, and is in a custom folder (not in the running user's folder, neither in a public folder). I don't see an option in Classic, neither in Lightning to change the running user.

Can someone please guide, how i can change the running user on the scheduled report.? Thanks!

Although there is no option of selecting a running user in scheduling reports, as a system admin, you can simple impersonate/log in as desired user and can schedule the report

  • The desired user is Inactive – GroundToCloud Jul 6 '20 at 13:55
  • From your question, I assume you want to change the running user from Inactive user to Active user. So that means, at present, the user under which this report is running is inactive right? – SK_112 Jul 6 '20 at 13:57
  • That's correct. – GroundToCloud Jul 6 '20 at 13:58
  • Then in that case, you can impersonate as an active user and can schedule the report. – SK_112 Jul 6 '20 at 13:59
  • How? i am an active user, I am in the System Admin profile, with all permissions. I don't see an option to change the running user to select my name or any other user's name. – GroundToCloud Jul 6 '20 at 14:01

  1. Click on the Report Tab , and search the report.
  2. Click on the little down arrow as shown in the screen shot and click 'Customize'
